For the second year running Eleanor Bolton invites participants to explore making with rope. After last year’s successful rope jewellery workshops, this year Eleanor – in collaboration with Rhonda Drakeford of Darkroom – will present a rope plant hanger workshop. You will have the chance to make a macrame plant hanger embellished with ceramic and wooded geometric components in a nod to Darkroom’s signature bold aesthetic.
Eleanor Bolton trained at the Royal College of Art and started her studio practice upon graduating in 2010. She is known for her unique craft technique of coiling and hand stitching cotton rope to create sculptural yet lightweight tactile jewellery. More recently Eleanor has also branched into interiors with a range of knotted plant hangers. Colour inspiration for collections often comes from fine art and the bold use of colour and textile techniques marry to create statement tribal and nautical-inspired pieces.
Darkroom is a bold design brand from London that celebrates the crafted and the curious — It strives to make good design accessible, whilst also questioning the norm. Launched in 2009, Darkroom continues to be steered by design director Rhonda Drakeford.
